Description

This function calculates the score vector S and the inverse of the Fisher information matrix for the fixed (beta) and the random effects (u1, u2) in Model 3. This model has two independet sets of random effects. The first one contains independent random effects u1dk associated to each category and domain. The second set contains random effects u2dkt associated to each category, domain and time period. Model 3 assumes that the u2dk are AR(1) correlated across time. modelfit3 uses the output of this function to estimate the fixed and random effect by the PQL method.

Usage

1
Fbetaf.ct(sigmap, X, Z, phi1, phi2, y, mu, u1, u2, rho)

Arguments

sigmap

a list with the model variance-covariance matrices for each domain obtained from wmatrix.

X

list of matrices with the auxiliary variables obtained from data.mme. The dimension of the list is the number of categories of the response variable minus one.

Z

design matrix of random effects.

phi1

vector with the values of the variance components for the first random effects obtained from modelfit3.

phi2

vector with the values of the variance components for the second random effects obtained from modelfit3.

y

matrix with the response variable, except the reference category. The rows are the domains and the columns are the categories of the response variable minus one.

mu

matrix with the estimated mean of the response variable.

u1

matrix with the values of the first random effect obtained from modelfit3.

u2

matrix with the values of the second random effect obtained from modelfit3.

rho

vector with the values of the correlation parameter obtained from modelfit3.

Value

A list containing the following components.

F

the inverse of the Fisher information matrix of (beta, u1, u2).

S

(beta, u1, u2) score vectors
